Arts Camp revitalizes congregation and community

Arts Camp revitalizes congregation and community

The Oregonian showcases Grace Memorial Church (Portland, OR) summer arts camp:

Grace Memorial Episcopal Church has offered Grace Art Camp, a summer arts camp, for the past fifteen years. This summer, over a thousand children will work in a half-dozen studios creating glass, fiber, music and dance projects inspired by specific cultures chosen each year. The program tries to keep students involved in the arts at a time that schools are cutting back and it has given new life to a once small and aging congregation.

Full disclosure– this is the church where I was baptized, confirmed and married.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
